We had booked this “casa particular” based on the photos and excellent reviews, so had high expectations. The moment we arrived in Trinidad, we knew we had made the right choice. Manuel, the owner, met us off the bus from Havana and walked with us the 200 metres to his casa. As we stepped through the front door, we realised we had arrived somewhere very special. The main living room, with its period furniture, takes you immediately back to the colonial era and the inner patio is a real delight. Among plants of every variety are several sitting areas – so well laid out and restful. Our bedroom was huge, beautifully decorated and very clean and comfortable. Manuel and his wife Lisbet were marvellous hosts and and so helpful. They delighted us with a delicious lobster dinner and a huge breakfast. We highly recommend this marvellous casa.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This beautiful colonial house is located in Trinidad's historical center, just two blocks away from the Central Square and local bars (Casa de la Musica, Palenque, Casa de la Trova). The house was constructed in 1754 by the Spanish with all the architectural elements of colonial houses which have been preserved (internal patio, wooden ceiling, floral motif ornamentation of the door and window paneling). Its two rooms have been refurbished with all modern amenities. The owner and his family will certainly make you feel at home! ... more less
